Written by Chance Dorland

A 2016 education report from The Economist asks if higher wages or less working hours make a better teacher. While South Korea has one of the highest wages for public teachers in the OECD, public teachers in the ROK also spend double the average amount of time on administrative tasks. Korea FM reporter Chance Dorland spoke with Economist data journalist Slavea Chankova & Ellen Sherratt, the co-Deputy Director of the Center on Great Teachers & Leaders & senior researcher at American Institutes for Research, to find out more.
